News, but not the serious kind
Want a margarita in a dribble glass, sir?
Blog Guy, I know you’re blogging from vacation, and some of your readers have been debating where you might have gone.
Thanks for your interest. I’m at a world-famous practical joke camp for adults.
“Camp Juvenile, where the novelty never wears off!” We spend two weeks learning the basics of really amusing practical jokes, with an emphasis on the classics.
It’s wonderful here. I love meals in the rustic mess hall, where every seat has a whoopee cushion and they only serve drinks in dribble glasses. Last night at campfire, the director doused the flames and the logs kept relighting. We were in stitches!
Meanwhile, you can’t walk five steps here without seeing a pile of poop or barf. Of course it’s all fake. I think.
Yeah, quite a departure from my daily blogging, huh? Hey, you want to smell this flower in my lapel?
Oops, gotta run. They’re making us write postcards to the folks back home. “Dear Mom, I’m having a great time. P.S., Mom, your shoelace is untied.”
